Kenny Slaught recognizes that many families depend on the hospice and their counseling and support services. Regularly, the hospice offers individual, group, and family counseling sessions free of charge. These helpful programs deal with a variety of issues regarding traumatic loss while emphasizing the various aspects of emotional, psychological, and spiritual well-being that are critical for those in these situations. For individuals who cannot attend the center, the hospice offers counseling sessions at many other safe locations within the community. Research has proven that those attending counseling sessions early in the grieving process can greatly reduce their risk of unresolved grief manifesting down the road. Additional research has found that counselors specializing in matters related to loss and grief are more effective at helping those who have experienced a traumatic event than general mental health practitioners.
